    No nothing fancy, easy to do yourself, but if you're unsure... it is brakes after all, so perhaps consider the R500 labor you'll pay to have them safely done money well spent.

    Re: 1GR-FE (4.0 V6) mileage

    Radiator pipe popped off and head gaskets blew, but I suspect pipe popped off due to increased combustion pressure in cooling system, so I'm not 100% sure of the cause yet, the Prado has 399kkm on it.
